A word about credentials. The credentials earned by Dr. Arvanitis are some of the most rigorous and difficult credentials to obtain out of all the credentials in the world. Many credentials exist, but most are awarded upon completion of a course, or by being a member of an organization, without rigorous testing. As a patient it can be difficult to understand the difference. This is why our licensing college, The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario does not allow us to broadly advertise credentials. Dr. Arvanitis invites any patient to do their research and actually investigate the organizations and the credential that your prospective dentist is advertising. The American Board of Oral Implantology Diplomat and the American Academy Of Implant Dentistry Fellow are widely recognized as the two of the most difficult and prestigious awards in the field of Implant Dentistry. There are only a handful of dentists and specialists with these credentials in Canada. Dr. Arvanitis is proud to be one of them. Feel free to follow the links to those organizations’ websites and see for yourself what is involved in obtaining these respected credentials.
